NKOTB--New Kat on the Block

If you read the title and thought "New Kids on the Block" must have lived as a teenager in the '90s!
Anyway, we have a new "kat" on the block--Mikey. He adopted Katie earlier this fall. We were having the gutters replaced on the house and this kitten appeared. We thought he came with the work crew (and maybe he did). He was jumping off the house onto them, running in between their feet, and being a general nuisance. When the crew left, the kitten stayed.
The rest is history.

He would let Katie carry him around all over the place.

He was worming his way into our house, and our hearts.I started calling him "Mikey"--not sure why--but it fits him!

Meike thinks she's his momma and he's OK with that!

Zoobilation: The Christmas Edition

We took the girls to the Indianapolis Zoo's Christmas at the Zoo. The day started out at 50 degrees, but by the time we got there, and the sun went down, it was below freezing! We had a good time anyway.

(Yes, my girls wore faux fur to the zoo....)

Audrey on the carousel. They loved it so much, we rode it twice!

Miss Kate on the carousel. She had a sticker on her forehead the entire evening.

The pictures are a little blurry, but I think you can tell they really enjoyed it!

The Thrifty Fifty!

I've been following the challenge from You Can Make This. In a nutshell, 50 people were chosen to make all their Christmas gifts for under $50! While I wasn't one of the 50 chosen, it's still exciting to see how everyone is doing. Check out the blog entries here.
